As-Salaamu alaikum

Ihram – A state in which one is prohibited to practice certain acts that are lawful at other times. The duties of Umrah and Hajj are performed during this state. When one assumes this state the first thing one should do is to express mentally and orally one’s intention to assume this state for the purpose of performing Hajj or Umrah. Two sheets unstitched clothes are the only clothes one wears (men) , a) Izar worn below the waist and the other b) Rida is worn around the upper part of the body. Then Talbiyah, is recited after pronouncing the intention. For woman she must wear the correct Islamic Hijab with the exception of wearing gloves and Niqab.
